Poser Octane tips

A section where I will share more or less random tips on using Octane with the Poser plugin.

Spotlights in Octane.


There are several ways you can use spotlights in Octane, unfortunately not yet the new native spotlights which were recently introduced in Octane.


The traditional way of adding a spotlight is by using IES distribution maps. This works fine but has a few disadvantages over the type of spotlights we are used to in Poser: No control over size (cone) or falloff of the light.


But there is another way of adding a spotlight.

If you use an image like this as distribution map,

C2

you can have full control over its size and falloff. To make that work, set its projection mode to Box and set its coordinate space to Normal Space.

You can control the direction of the beam by rotating the emitter, its cone size by scaling the UV transform and the falloff can be adjusted by scaling the emitter itself.

Spotmat

By using a relatively small spot on the distribution image, the scaling of the emitter on which the image is mapped will define the edge of the small spot.

Small delay for new renders. I got an eyelid operation last thursday and was unable to see much. Operation went fine and I can hopefully see well enough again in the next few days.

I have had no art training whatsoever and i cannot draw a straight line, but I really wanted to illustrate stories i wanted to write, so when i found Poser, a new world opened for me. The first 10 years of using it was my training. It took a long time to finally figure out how to make a nice picture and I am still learning. The great break through came for me when I got Octane as render engine. The speed and render quality were an eye opener for me and i started to actually like my work. That was in 2012. This was my first octane render. I was blown away with realism miles ahead of what i had produced before. Nowadays I like to make pictur

Hi, have you received my message? :)

I've seen many artist here with tons of 3d naked stuff, but something about the stuff on your gallery just makes me love it more than anything else i've seen. Great job!

Thank you for you comment.

When I use nudity, I try to make it plausible - for real or for imaginary events. I also often put hints in the pictures to make to give it some backstory.

It is the type of images Iove to create.

Thanks for the :+devwatch: and the:+fav:!!!!

Thanks for the D-watch friend. :dance:
